Asylum

Some individuals immigrate to the United States for joyful reasons, such as family reunification. Others, however, come to this country to flee violence or war in their home countries.   Such individuals may qualify for protection of the United States government by applying for Asylum. Individuals who suffered past persecution on behalf of a government may be eligible for asylum. Whether you are seeking to apply for asylum before USIC (affirmative application) or have a deportation case before the Immigration Court (defensive), our office can assist you in this complex process. If you are not in deportation proceedings, but would like to apply for asylum, you must do so within one year of your initial entry to the United States.
